This is one of the 26 cemeteries located on the North Shore of Fontana Lake as of today.
In this slide presentation you will see the cemetery as it looks today but also you will see pictures made in 1975-77 of the disarray the same cemetery was in when the North Shore Cemetery Association began its preservation of these cemeteries. They were being left to go back to nature, (as we were told), for the purpose of having the public to believe no one had every lived in the area. You will see trees on top of grave sites, fences falling, hedges and trees growing up and hiding graves, the tombstones fallen and decaying. A few members of different families had been back to a few of these cemeteries since 1943 but due to location and having to cross by boat were unable to help keep them up properly.
Located on the north shore of Fontana Lake in Swain County, NC. Now part of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park
